Just when we thought we knew almost everything that there is to know about the 2009 blockbuster Avatar, Govinda has broken the internet with a very unexpected and surprising fact.
Our very own Coolie No. 1 and Bade Miyan Chote Miyan hero dropped the mother of all revelations stating that he was offered the lead actor’s role and that he even gave the title of the film. And no, he wasn’t joking.
Don’t confuse yourself. This is the same Avatar which was directed by James Cameron (not the M Night Shyamalan one), the movie which until recently still owned the top spot in the biggest-grossing movie of all time only to be surpassed by Avenger: Endgame.
In a recent episode of Aap Ki Adalat, the actor told the show host Rajat Sharma that he rejected the part as Cameron wanted him to shoot for 410 days. And on top of that, Chichi was not at all ‘chill’ with getting his entire body painted blue.
